Indian and wild west

151 Discovered works of art
Indians as courageous and fearless fighters, splendidly decorated with colorful feathers. Wildlife for buffalo hunting amidst rolling hills and the shores of pristine rivers.

Often, the depiction of Indians in art is stereotyped. It should be remembered that many images of Indians and the Wild West have emerged, even before the photography has been able to depict the actual living conditions of the Native Americans.

The artists tried to convey to their contemporary audience information that was not available anywhere else. It was important for them to show pictures of Indians who did not pose a threat to Americans. Early American artists depicting Indians depicted Indians and their territories at a time when they were about to be expelled from them. Although many political agreements were signed only under compulsion from Indians, they were readily shown signing contracts of assignment, as in William Penn's picture "Agreement with the Indians in November 1683". Other depictions, instead of fear of Indians, sought to provoke pity for a vanishing people - like Joseph Wright of Derby's "Widow of an Indian Chief."

If Indians are romantically transfigured as "noble savages", this is an attempt to protect the Indian people, so that they do not have to meet him alone in the war. Many portraits of Indians are intended to show peaceful, conversational fellow human beings, who may seem exotic, but allow the other person's gaze to reciprocate and look directly at the viewer. The American George Catlin (1796-1872) called his portraits of Indians with Tomahawk and colorful traditional painting a "collection of dignitaries of nature". He wrote:

"Art will still grieve for these people when they are driven from the earth. The artists of the future will then look in vain for another race whose costumes, weapons, colors, rituals and hunting are so picturesque. "
